The Federal Maritime Commission is proposing changes to its exemption for non-vessel-operating common carriers (NVOCCs) from the tariff publication requirements of the Shipping Act of 1984. The proposed rule would revise the exemption to allow NVOCCs and shippers' associations with NVOCC members to act as shipper parties in NVOCC Service Arrangements.
